ILR Show Division

November 12, 2010

PRESENT: Ryan Laux, Kristy Brown, Hank Kaufmann and Justin Timm present. Darrell Anderson and Amy Serridge were unable to attend.

Call to Order at 8:13pm EST.

EXPIRING TERM: Hank Kaufmann’s term is expiring. He is considering rerunning and will notify the committee in a few days.

There was discussion of a change in the judges scoring system to assign percentages to prioritize traits. There were concerns that judges will get lost in the score card and not see the whole animal/whole package. The theory would be to utilize a score card as a training aid for consistency in judging, but not use it as a standard for all classes. The committee will continue discussion and develop a template for use and present it to the Judges and Fleece Committees for input then test it at a few shows.  

The committee discussed combining the Classic-True Light Wool due to their similar phenotype. The light/medium and medium heavy classes would be combined as a Medium-Heavy class. Suri and Silky and Extreme Heavy would remain unchanged. Motion was made to change to approved halter classes to:    

            1. Suri,

            2. Silky,

            3. Classic/Light Wool,

            4. Medium-Heavy,

            5. Extreme Heavy.

Motion by Kristy, second by Hank. Motion passed. The descriptions and photos on the website will be updated after January 1, 2011.

Motion to adjourn by Kristy, second by Ryan.  Motion adjourned at 10:03 EST

Respectfully submitted,

Kristy Brown for Amy Serridge (ILR-SD Halter Committee Secretary)

Note: Items proposed by committee must be approved by the Governing Board and if approved, will not take effect until January 1, 2011.
